Foundation HMSM

Together we give young talent a chance!

The HMSM Foundation wants to offer young, ambitious people with a passion and talent for hospitality the opportunity to study at the Hotel Management School Maastricht. Especially now the support of our community, and everyone else who feels connected to our school, is important. Read more about our success stories.

An international mix of students is essential to optimally prepare all students for a future in a changing and innovative industry. However, for some foreign students the amount of study costs is an insurmountable barrier. Especially for those from a less prosperous country.

Would you like to grant a young ambitious student from outside Europe a life-changing study at the Hotel Management School Maastricht? Then please become a donor. In this way you help a future generation and support the future of our industry at the same time. Together we can make dreams come true. Find out how donations can be made.

For many alumni, the Hotel Management School Maastricht was the beginning of a new phase. They started their careers here. They became part of a lifelong network. You wish everyone else could have such a great student time and experience.

We have a strict selection. But also higher tuition fees than usual because we offer small-scale education. Furthermore there are additional costs for, among other things, a Tenue de Ville, a set of kitchen clothes and knives and the room rental for living in the Student Residences for the first year. For some students the amount of study costs is an insurmountable barrier. Especially for those from a less prosperous country.

Foundation derived from community

Alumni have sweet memories of their unique hotel school days. Many stay strongly connected with our institute after graduation. They are willing to contribute e.g. by giving guest lectures or facilitating internships and graduation projects. In recent years we have regularly received ideas and suggestions for financial support. We are now responding to this wish by establishing our own foundation for the Hotel Management School Maastricht. We are very proud and grateful that the initiative originated from our community.

Alumni and students about the Foundation


Do you want to donate?

The world has been considerably affected and everyone is feeling the consequences. However, Dutch and European students still know where to find us. Their options for (starting) a study still seem good.However, this does not apply to everyone. We are particularly concerned about international students who do not have sufficient financial funds to study with us. Your financial support to the HMSM Foundation makes an impact.


Success stories

Since the start, the HMSM Foundation has realized beautiful large and small projects. With the support of more than 150 alumni and employees, we helped a Lebanese student in financial need and raised 25,000 euros to complete his bachelor's degree in Hotel Management. Together with alumni, who are also employees of HMSM, we have realized an alumni bench in the new park at the campus.
